Are Today’s Dentures Better?

Nov 19, 2022 | Digital Dentures

It’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between this implant bridge and the digital denture above it.
Today’s technology makes them more lifelike.

Absolutely today’s dentures are better…if you get the right ones.

Today’s Digital Dentures, made digitally using digital models and 3D Printing and Milling, are absolutely better. They fit and look better and can be much more easily replaced than old fashioned full dentures. However, not all complete dentures being made today are made digitally. Upgrading technology and training to modern dentistry takes effort and investment. Any denture made using the old fashioned wax methods will the same as one made 50 years ago with the same method. When you ask are today’s dentures better, you have to specify which ones: digital or old fashioned. Digital are definitely better!

What’s Better About Today’s Digital Dentures?

If you want to dive deep into this topic, check out Digital Dentures page. We’ll answer the question briefly here.

First of all, digital modern dentures feel good and look better. That comes from the method we use to make them. The 3D Printing & Milling technologies reproduce the model denture exactly. In the old method, a wax model creates irregularities and shrinkage when it gets converted to the final acrylic denture. This shrinkage messes with the way it fits your gum tissue. Furthermore, with digital technology, we can also design your denture teeth to match your dream smile whether that means matching your natural teeth when you loved them or another type of smile.

Finally, if you ever need to replace your denture: you drop it, the dog chews it up, you lose it… We can remake a digital denture much faster! Since we keep the digital models on file for a long time, we don’t have to start from zero. With the old fashioned method, the wax model gets destroyed when the permanent denture gets made. If you ever need a new one, the old fashioned method makes you start from scratch beginning with a brand new initial impression.

So, are today’s dentures better? If you’re looking for a better fit, high quality, more life-like replacement teeth and something that’s easy-to-replace, the answer is a definite YES!
